Jackie O’s Biere de Creme

Brewed by Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery
Athens, Ohio USA
4.25% Cream Ale | 8 Ratings | Spring Seasonal |
I love this beer! A nod to both Belgian and American brewers Biere De Crème is an inspired Cream Ale. Here in Athens Ohio springtime is beautiful. The weather is fantastic, young spirited students are out and about and everybody is looking for an easy drinking beer with that same playful feeling, Biere de Crème is that brew. Traditionally American brewers would add a portion of corn to lighten up the body in cream ales. I choose to take this a different direction by adding clear Belgian candied syrup. Belgian and American malts help add soft nuances culminating into a very unique beer that is a delight to quaff.
